Frank Hyneman Knight (1885-1972) was an important economist of the twentieth century. He obtained a B. S. and an M. A. (the latter in German) in 1913 at the University of Tennessee. He then moved to Cornell University for doctoral studies. His initial main subject was philosophy, but he soon switched to economics. He studied with Alvin Johnson and Allyn Young, who both supervised the work on his dissertation that was completed in 1916 under the title Cost, Value and Profit. He would subsequently revise it for publication under its more familiar name Risk, Uncertainty and Profit (1921). The famously opinionated Knight used his numerous book reviews in Chicago's Journal of Political Economy as a vehicle for his thoughts on many subjects. As a result, he was embroiled in many debates with the most prominent economists of his day ranging over capital theory, welfare theory, Keynesian theory and positivist methodology. His other works include: Cost of Production and Price Over Long and Short Periods (1921) and The Ethics of Competition (1923).

Every day, individuals, groups, and organizations make decisions that involve uncertainty and risk - and, often, important consequences for society. Increasingly, our lives are being defined by large-scale organizational decision processes involving governments, businesses and other institutions. This book examines the nature of decisionmaking by organizations confronted with various risks, focusing on choices in which technology and scientific advances play major roles. The contributors also look at the regulatory agencies that set and enforce standards of health and safety. Within the literature on risk analysis this book is unique in its integration of social theory with wide variety of case examples. Theories of rational choice advanced by neoclassical economics and cognitive psychology are critically examined in view of the importance of the context for decisionmaking. Specific avenues for the study of the organizational/institutional contexts of decisionmaking and the process of socially constructing risk objects are proposed as a means of correcting the weaknesses of these theories. The contributors examine the strategies of manufacturing and communications firms, neonatal intensive care units of hospitals, and a major U.S. governmental strategies are given: how energy choices are made in France and how expert advice and formal public involvement are incorporated into risk-related policy decisions in Britain. Field studies of regulatory agencies in Britain at both policymaking and enforcement levels are also included.

This important book features original and interesting new work by an internationally acclaimed group of authors on the history and development of economic thought. A range of important issues in twentieth century economics is addressed including the current state of methodological investigation, early modes of conflict and Wicksell's concept of capital. The economics of the inter-war period are examined as they pertain to Dutch Marxism, mainstream theories of uncertainty and the origin of the theory of imperfect competition. A series of papers on Keynes includes perspectives on issues ranging from his philosophical thinking to the relationship between his ideas on the limits of measurement and uncertainty. The final section explores the measurement of economic constructs both as a practical problem in the development of national income accounts after the Second World War, and as a theoretical issue in the work of Farrell and Leibenstein. Featuring important contributions from the 19th annual meeting of the History of Economics society, this book will be welcomed because it makes available to a wider audience a series of important contributions on the history of intellectual and economic thought.
